Two bomb scares hit the city today. Fortunately, both came out negative.
First was along Osmeña Street near the vicinity of Cogon Market as shown in the photo below by @effgee shared via twitter. At left is UCPB Cogon and at right is the former Gotic Theater. BPI and China Bank are located further from this junction. This road section was cordoned by the bomb squad.
Then, later this afternoon along CM Recto Avenue across China Bank as shown in the facebook photos below by Rutche Cutanda Fullo (screenshot of her post).
As usual in both cases, bystanders mill around the cordoned area.
